Graduate Research Assistant
Stony Brook University

Born in New York but raised abroad, Lara takes pride in her multi-cultural heritage and upbringing. After undergraduate studies in pre-medicine at Sarah Lawrence College, Lara pursued her interest in research through a Master’s in Biomedical Sciences at Stony Brook University. She followed this by joining the Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology PhD Program where she studies intratumor heterogeneity in castration resistant models of prostate cancer in Dr. Flaminia Talos’ lab at Stony Brook Cancer Center. Lara’s work utilizes novel technologies with the ultimate goal of developing therapies that block the emergence of treatment resistance, preventing cancer relapse and advanced disease.
